    I've got another 75 points for buying 2 Boots toiletries so not as good this time - 1.50 for 2 toothpastes probably

    Just looked at Impulse BodyMist - one is called 'whipped cream and microchip' whatever that means...

    There's also one called 'White Lace and Muddy Grass' which sounds unappealingly like a huge laundry problem to me..

    and another is 'Burnt Marshmallow and Leather Jacket' - I assume they mean clothing and not the garden bug...

    Marketing gone stark raving mad.

    Probably no help to you, but do people know that if you have a TalkTalk home-phone/internet contract you can get a free mobile sim that gives you 500 mg 200 Min's and unlimited text per month ?
    Should cost 5.00 per month if buying, can upgrade if wanted for a fee.

    It's what I use and gives me enough data for when in Mum's and connect to Asda, Tesco, etc when out, so enough for my meagre needs.

    All Toys R Us stores in the UK will close in the next six weeks following the chain's collapse into administration.

    Can't do the BBC link for some reason, sorry. But it's under the Business tab and it says remaining stock will be discounted further and they are 'encouraging customers to take advantage of the special offers while stock levels remain high.'

    You put me to shame TM - I think you need to come round and give me a kick up the backside! My motivation has disappeared since my little sister passed away but I really need to get back into things now. I have a half renovated house that desperately needs some love & attention x

    Wine shop done on the way home, whole house now vacuumed and washing done so more time tomorrow to finish the painting in the bathroom that I started ages ago

    I note the relevant Villa Maria is still showing 7 on m.com; however I am getting 9.50 SELs in my Ms now. Having had five stores displaying this price, I have concluded that the product is now 9.50 in M even though I have not scanned it. I am not seeing 7 anywhere and definitely not 6. I scanned the other two wines due to issues I had in my stores over those. The Wolf Blass Chardonnay Semillion is still on the M mbuy, even though one of my stores has lost the mbuy from the display. I am getting full price SELs (12) on the Freixenet as well in stores that have stock, even though it is still 9 in M today.
